In late 2016 I started to take my meditation practice much more seriously. Prior to this year, I was meditating sporadically and found myself struggling to adopt a routine that worked for me. But, after a few months of practice, I have now come to a place where I look forward to it each day and have come to cherish both the silence and profound understanding that meditation brings.
As for the structure of my meditation routine, there isn’t really much to tell. I know myself well enough now to know that I don’t do too well with strict schedules or too much structure. So, sometimes I’ll mediate immediately following breakfast, and before heading to the yoga studio. And sometimes, I’ll meditate directly after my yoga practice, before heading back home. I allow myself to go with the flow and permit my schedule to vary from day to day, if necessary. This easy-going mindset has actually aided me when keeping up with my daily practice. I think it’s so important to understand that meditation gets easier over time and with practice, so don’t be hard on yourself. Eventually you’ll feel at peace and have the ability to relax quickly, and to find a calm state within the mind and body.
Now, I do also want to mention a new product I’ve been using pre-meditation, from a California based company called Ojai Energetics. The product is called Super CBD and is formulated for those looking to reap the amazing benefits from CBD-rich hemp oil. If you’re not familiar with CBD (cannibidiol), simply put, it’s a component of marijuana but does not produce the psychoactive effects. What it does provide, in my opinion and from my own personal research, is strong medicinal and therapeutic effects. I find taking a dropper full pre-meditation calms my nerves and allows for a relaxed, flow state during my practice. For me, it’s been very beneficial.
Ojai’s Super CBD uses non-gmo and organic ingredients, inclusive of pure, sustainable hemp. The company focuses on ethically grown materials and is super passionate about the environment. This is a company doing great things, helping people find alternative ways to live in a calm, flow state. If you’re interested in learning more about CBD and it’s benefits, have a look at Ojai Energetic’s website as it has a ton of fantastic information. You can also check out the links I’ve included below for a broader education on the subject.
I wish you a beautiful day, and should you have any questions about the information included in this post, please don’t hesitate to reach out! I’d love to hear your thoughts and start a dialogue. 🙂
Lots of love, namaste.
